mond's Ranch; Dr. Norman, Robson: Chas. Husband, Columbia Gardens; J. Patterson, Arrow Park; D.
Wadds, Vancouver; W. Jackson,
Creaton; Frank Weisner, Castlegar;
J. Fleming, Fairfield. The credit for
bringing these excursionists to the
city belongs to the management of
the Riverside nurseries.
The camniittee selected to gather
the exhibits, consisting of Messrs.
Collins, Holmes and Honsberger,
deserve unstinted praise. It was owing to their untiring efforts that the
"fair" proved an unqualified success. Fred Clark and A. D. Morrison had charge of placing the exhibits in the building, and they also
performed their work well.

For Laughing Purposes
"Built for laughing purposes only"
describes Teddy Webb, who on
Monday night, along witb the other
members of the San Francisco Opera
company, entertained a good house
at the theatre. The audience went
from oneconvolsion of laughter to
another all the way through the
sparkling play, "The Gay Paris-
ienne." The audience was demonstrative, and showed appreciation
right from the drop of the hat, while
on their side, the company cast
woodenness to the winds and entered gaily into the nonsense—one
had almost deviltry—of the play.
Body, bones, and breeches, Teddy is
a comedian, and whether in Scotch
taitan or in broadcloth, he was irresistible. Miss Mabel Day, the
Parisienne, was very sweet. For
daintiness of form and manner
she is comparable only to a humming-bird, and a bird-like voice is
one of her charms. In a bewitching
costume of red, with immaculate
lingerie, she won the hearts of the
men both on and off the Stage. A
duet, "Tweedledum and Tweedle-
dee," by these two principals, and a
quartette, "Cock-a-Doodle doo," in
which tbey took part, appealed to
the popular taste. The Major will
be kindly remembered for the masterly style in whicb he gave the bass
solos, "Tbe Grenadiers" and "I
Want What I Want" Miss Leicester was perfect as Mrs. Honeycomb,
though the part does not give scope
for her sprightliness and vivacity.
The bill would make a joyful ending for the bluest Monthly that ever
dawned.

"Regret that the financial condi-
ion of the church is such that inducement to stay could not be offered to Rev. T. G. MacLeod," was
the dominant feeling expressed at a
congregational meeting held in Knox
church on Wednesday night. The
meeting had been called for the purpose of formulating a resolution in
regard to Mr. McLeod's resignation.
Rev. Mr. Ross was ir. the chair. All
those in attendance were encouraged
to siate their attitude towards a
passive acceptance ol the resignation.
A number were in favor of asking
the minister to reconsider the matter. Rut this was overruled by
others, who reasoned that as the
finances are now considerably in
arrears, adequate compensation for
his services could nut be assured.
Personal attachment lo the minister
and high praise for his fidelity to
the church's interests were expressed. The seeming inability to
get together the necessary fund's
alone influenced the meeting to allow the resignation to come unprotested before the Presbytery.
A meeting of the Presbytery was
held in Knox church on Thursday
evening for the purpose of considering Rev. .Mr. MacLeod's resignation,
Rev. Mr. MacLeod acted as moderator. , Those present were Rev. Mr.
Lundie, of Phoenix; Rev. M. McKee, of Greenwood, and Rev Mr.
Dow, of Rossland. David While-
side represented the kirk session,
and Mr. Little the congregational
meeting held on the previous evening.
In the face of existing conditions, no alternative was left the
Presbytery but to accept the resignation. All eulogized iln- character of
Mr. MacLeod, and the highest expressions of Jegiird were given on
the part of the Presbytery.
After the Resignation of Rev Mr.
MacLeod had been acted upon, lev.
M. McKee, of Greenwood, tendered
his resignation.
Rev. Mr. Lundie, of Phoenix, was
appointed   moderator  of the   kirk
.session, mid through him supply for

Rev. Mr. MacLeod will preach his
farewell sermon to bis   congregation

SATURDAY, OCT.   2, 1909
The Saturday Sunset, of Vancouver, last week issued a "vigorous
Vancouver edition,'' consisting of
three sections of sixteen pages each.
As usual the paper is printed on
heavy book paper, and the illustrations are numerous and embrace a
wide range of subjects The publication is an indubitable evidence of the
enterprise of its proprietors, and
should prove a valuable asset us a
publicity medium for tin; Terminal
City.
The exhibition made in this city
last .Saturday of tho products of the
ranch and orchard of the Kettle valley proved a surprise to even the people of the community, Considering
tho short notice on which the display
wascollected,it was simply marvelous,
and is a fairly reliable indication of
what the city might do in tlio way of
getting up a more pretentious exhibition of the products of this district, if
more time ami discrimination were
Used in selecting the exhibits. It is
to be hoped that no efforts will be
spared to bring about this consummation next year. If the project now
under way to organize au agricultural
association for the purpose of holding
annual fairs is successfully carried
out, there cm be no question as to the
success of the enterprise, because the
valley produces products worth exhibiting, and geographical location of
the citv is such that we could command n larger crowd of visitors than
nny other city in the interior of the
province. The formation of the association would mean government
grants for exhibition purposes, and the
financing of the undertaking should
therefore be aueasy tusk. Byall means
let us organize the association and
hold our lirst fair next year. There is
no better way to advertise lhe district.
It has long been apparent to the
most casual observer that the nominal
editor of   the  Gazette is cm ited.
Why this trait should carry with it
senile childishness is  matter that has
never beeu  adequately explai I   by
physinlogists.anii we shall not attempt
to throw any light on the subject in
this brief item. But it is a fact that
in this case the incompatible combination exists. He aoouses The Sun of
copying the minutes of the council
meeting from his paper. The Gazette,
nsfaros we know.holds no copyright ou
the council proceedings, and The Sun
bus free access lo all public documents. As an evidence that wecould
not have obtained our report from his
paper, lhe Gazette was studiously
silent on lhe subject of its editor's
silly harangue respecting his fake advertising -I'lieiiii's. The same remarks
apply lo the proceedings of lhe forestry commission. The evidence submitted beioi-elhal body is u mat ter of
public record. A word regarding the
methods of two papers. With the exception of half 11 dozen times, when
absence was unavoidable, The Sun has
had a representative at, every couneil
meeting during the pasl nine years.
Tiie ratepayers and readers of lhe
paper are entitled to this, because in
many instances it is the only way in
which they can ascertain how the public business is being transacted and
how the people's funds are expended.
On the other hand, lhe only occasions on which our contemporary has
been represented at a session has been
when its editor has hud some advertising fake—not to uso a harsher and
more appropriate term—that lie desired sanctioned, at the expense of the
ratepayers. Only a vague idea re

may grow to like it—but we doubt it.
When an editor has not enough
modesty to keep his name out of the
personal column of his own paper he
should attend a journalistic night-
school for a decade.
It appears to he a mooted question
whether our publicity artiste is giving
Giaud Forks or Neepaw^ the preponderance of his profound deliberations.
It is to the credit of the owners of
the Gazette that they aro uot financially interested in the editor's
schemes. But the question naturally
arises, "What dues he do to earn his
salary?"

Sunrise on the Prairie
[A Schoolboy's Composition.]
Sunrise on the prairie is like nothing else in all the world The prairie,
without the magic effect of the sun, i.s
a limitless expanse of dewy verdure,
and when the early morning li.U'ht
shines upon it, the scene is changed to
a boundless ocean of diamond drops of
brightness.
1 had risen at three on a June
morning that I might behold the entire panoramo of tho earth, the sky,
and all nature under the touch of the
skyey artist. The earth lav spread
out in gloomy silence, strangely and
solemnly impressive. Over it hovered
the mists, sombre and gray, under n
sky just fading from the blackness of
light. As the light increased, far iu
the distance the horizon lay straight
across the picture with but a tiny
mound to break tho liue. The clouds
high iti heaven were touched with
streaks of red and gold until the flush
of dawn o'erspread all the sky ami
sharp arrows of light shot up, to
herald the approach of Phcebus in his
chariot of gold.
As soon as the arrows touched the
grass, the prairie was alive wilh glistening grandeur, and the morning
breezes, softly passing, bore thc sweet
freshness of dewy grass and Mowers ou
their wings and lilted the world with
the delightfulncss of summer, Then
the golden orb softly ascended, the
mists melted under its warm touch,
aud it was broad day.

Women who suffer with disorders peculiar to their
sex should write to Dr. Pierce and receive free the
advice ol a physician of over 40 years' experience
—a skilled and successful specialist in the diseases
of women. Every letter of this sort has the most
careful consideration and is regarded as sacredly
confidential. Many sensitively modest women write
fully to Dr. Pierce what they would shrink from
telling to their local physician. The local physician
is prrtty sure to say that he cannot do anything
without '*an examination." Dr. Pierce holds that
these distasteful examinations are generally need*
less,  and   that  no woman,  except  in   rare  cases, should  submit   to   them.
